It's Where is it? Wednesday in Coeur d'Alene. Idaho! - 06/22/11 08:43 PM
Janna Rankin Scharf, GRI, CLHMS, SFR - Coeur d'Alene Idaho Homes For Sale It's officially Ironman week in Coeur d'Alene Idaho, so I decided to post an Ironman picture for this week's installment of Where is it? Wednesday! I took this picture along the route at last year's Coeur d'Alene Ford Ironman Triathlon. I love to watch the triathletes from various vantage points, all day long. My favorite time to be a spectator, though, is at the finish line, as the midnight deadline approaches. Long after the elite athletes have crossed come the "regular" folks who set big goals and persevered to (4 comments)

Why did the turkeys cross the road? - 06/12/11 05:49 PM
Janna Rankin Scharf, GRI, CLHMS, SFR - Coeur d'Alene Idaho Homes for Sale The other day I was out in Rathdrum installing a lock box on a new listing. As I drove along I noticed an interesting sight - three turkeys strutting along the side of the road! Which posed the interesting question: Why did the turkeys cross the road? I pulled over and grabbed my camera, and thought I'd get a closer look. The birds seemed annoyed at my stalking of them, and about as cooperative as my kids are when I try to snap pictures of them. They were (4 comments)
The Pros and Cons of print advertising in Coeur d'Alene real estate - 06/09/11 08:32 PM
Janna Rankin Scharf, GRI, CLHMS, SFFR - Coeur d'Alene Idaho Homes For Sale It's common knowledge that more than 90% of all buyers begin their search for real estate online. I've seen statistics as high as 94%, and I don't doubt it for a minute. Along with the consumer's love affair with the internet came the mindset that print advertising is like throwing money down a rat hole. Statistics are pretty grim as to how effective it is in selling a property. Barely measurable. In general, I don't doubt that for a minute, either. However, there are times when I do believe it is worthwhile (4 comments)

Janna Rankin Scharf, GRI, CLHMS, SFR - Coeur d'Alene Idaho Homes for Sale I snapped this picture in February of 2010. It was a beautiful, sunny February.

Wordless Wednesday - No kidding, this is a real intersection! - 06/01/11 07:55 PM
Janna Rankin Scharf, GRI, CLHMS, SFR - Coeur d'Alene, Idaho Homes for Sale First of all, I have never been able to figure out how to NOT say any words with my Wordless Wednesday posts. I guess I'm just a "talker." But I do manage to keep the word count down to a minimum... While visiting my nephew in beautiful Banff this past Easter, we drove by the place he lived until just recently. Honest to goodness, this is the intersection he lived at, and this is the actual street sign. How much fun it would be to be able to (13 comments)
